Der kleine Ritter Trenk (Trenk the Little Knight)
Trenk the Little Knight is an intrepid young serf in a world of knights and robbers who is determined that his family shouldn’t live under the thumb of their horrible lord, Quentin the Quarrelsome, any longer than necessary. So with his pet piglet Little Piggy for company, Trenk sets out to find his fortune. His adventures often take surprising turns, but even when things seem hopeless, Trenk always manages to find a way out – with the help of the friends he makes along the way, such as Crafty Charlie, Sir Dirk of Durdlestone and his cowardly son Zink the Wimp, Sir Hal the Highborn and his clever daughter Thecla, and even a very dangerous dragon!
